[CES 2023] ASUS Reveals New ROG Peripherals & Destrier Gaming Chair
ASUS Reveals New ROG PC Peripherals & Destrier Gaming Chair
Models include ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition, ROG Hone Ace Aim Lab Edition, ROG Azoth, ROG Raikiri Pro and the aforementioned ROG Destrier.
ASUS has teamed up with Aim Lab to design the ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition gaming mouse. Despite being a wireless model – this ambidextrous mouse only weighs at 54g with the new bio-based nylon shell to minimize weight. Other features include AimPoint 36,000 dpi sensor, SpeedNova wireless and in-house microswitch rated for 70 million clicks. Another secret sauce is courtesy of Aim Lab Settings Optimizer – which let the mouse tunes itself to the best settings for the player in question.
The mouse also has a companion mousepad to go with it, the ROG Hone Ace Aim Lab Edition. It measures at 508 x 420 mm with hybrid cloth surface to optimize friction and a nano-coating layer that repels oil, water and dust.
ROG also introduces a new wireless keyboard, ROG Azoth. This 75% layout keyboard is designed for customization – out-of-the-box, it comes with silicon gasket mount and three-layer dampening; hot-swappable, factory-lubed ROG NX switches, keyboard stabilizers and PBT doubleshot keycaps. For those who prefer a different typing feel, there’s the bundled Krytox lubing kit to adjust the keyboard’s typing characteristics. On top of that it comes with OLED display, SpeedNova wireless & tri-mode connectivity, adjustable feet, and macOS support.
The next model is the ROG Raikiri Pro PC controller. This Xbox-licensed tri-mode controller allows Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB-C connectivity options towards PCs or Xbox consoles. The built-in OLED display can be customized with custom images and animations, on top of the basic status such as charging, mute controls or active profiles. There’s also four macro buttons available on the backside which allows for joystick sensitivity adjustment to custom button mapping. ASUS mentions the standard Raikiri model, with wired USB-C and two rear buttons, will be available soon as well.
Finally, the ROG Destrier Ergo Gaming Chair. It comes with head and lumbar support and “exceptional levels of adjustability”, along with padded armrests that allows a special mode designed for mobile gaming (basically keeping your elbows in place). It also mentions a “detachable acoustic panel” but ASUS didn’t delve too much into that.
Pokdepinion: Gaming chairs sure has come a long way since the early ones.
